Antarctic Cruises

A bucket list voyage that takes you to the end of the Earth and an expedition of discover on the world’s only (almost) uninhabited continent. In Antarctica the penguins outnumber the people and rugged mountain ranges stretch into the heart of this mysterious land. While witnessing stunning vistas and remarkable wildlife, learn about the incredible conservation work that is being done here to protect the virgin wilderness of Antarctica. On departure from Patagonia you will see monumental fjords and pass impressive icebergs on your journey south. Keep a look out for the impressive mammals that inhabit these waters like blue whales and orcas. Once your Antarctic cruise has docked in Antarctica perhaps you will join a bracing ‘polar plunge’ or take a kayak out on the still waters.
